DIY Pumpkin-Scented Soy Wax Candles

holllowed-pumpkin-candle-1

Welp, we’re just about elbow-deep in decorative gourd season, so it’s a great time to get into some delightful ways to make the most of all those gorgeous gourds with projects like this DIY pumpkin-scented soy wax candles tutorial by Brittni Mehlhoff over at Momtastic.

This project features all the slimy fun of gutting a pumpkin for carving, and even involves lighting a candle inside the pumpkin, but this time the pumpkin itself is the candle. This looks like a great project for the entire fall season and nice to way to get into candle making in anticipation of those long cold nights!
